Kassy Vang
UC Berkeley ’21

Kassy Vang (she/her/hers) is a first-generation, Hmong college graduate of UC Berkeley ‘21 with a Bachelors of Art in Public Health and Ethnic Studies. Ms. Kassy is originally from Fresno, CA where she was raised by two resilient and hard-working Hmong refugee parents who fled the Secret War. Throughout her youth, the pursuit of higher education has always been a prominent factor for her family as a way of betterment and empowerment, leading to her active participation in college preparation as a student and working professional.

As a product of a college preparatory program, AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination), and an active student organizer of educational outreach programs at Cal, Ms. Kassy found her passion in addressing and alleviating educational and health disparities and inequities among communities of color. Through DCAC and Boost, Ms. Kassy hopes to continue bridging educational gaps as she guides and empowers students to realize their potential, impact, and resiliency.

This year, Ms. Kassy looks forward to working with each Boost student by providing direct and individualized services to create plans to be competitive for college while providing appropriate resources and knowledge so each student can make their own informed decisions about their future. Ms. Kassy understands and knows how exciting and stressful college readiness and college applications can be for both students and their families, but Ms. Kassy’s goal is to ease this process for each student while simultaneously enhancing the college-going culture at Boost!
